    The National Rifle Association is taking credit for electing President-elect Trump and said that victory must be followed with stopping anti-gunners like billionaires George Soros and Michael Bloomberg who are expected to take their campaigns to state governments "Our time is now. We must approach the coming fights with the same urgency and determined action that ended the political future of Hillary Rodham Clinton," said NRA leader Wayne LaPierre in a message to his 5 million members.
  • NYT Celebrates Vulgar Left-Wing Turn of 'Newly Relevant' Rival NY Daily News

    The Times’ online headline, “Drop Dead? Not The Newly Relevant Daily News,” refers of course to it's rival's infamous 1975 headline: “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” The Daily News also rehashed its own headline recently to attack Ted Cruz for his crack about “New York values.” You guessed it: “Drop Dead, Ted.” That passes for “relevance” among the left and the NYT. Mahler took us inside the liberal hive mind, buzzing with giddy self-congratulation over yet another puerile attack on Republicans, while the Times dutifully reprinted the controversial Daily News covers that made liberals go giddy. On a recent afternoon,...
  • Hate Rhetoric: New York Daily News Labels NRA’s Executive Wayne LaPierre a 'Terrorist'

    Our beloved elite media loves to fabricate a major freak-out over “rhetoric” whenever a Republican says something they don't approve of (like the truth). But when it comes to actual hate rhetoric and the kind of fear-mongering that could get someone hurt, no one is worse than the elite media. Case in point: Friday, on the front page of the New York Daily News, the NRA's Wayne LaPierre is attacked in big red letters as a "TERRORIST." LaPierre's mug shot resides right next to actual terrorists Syed Farook, Robert Dear, Adam Lanza, James Holmes, and Dylann Roof. This is only...

    Colion Noir calls out The Huffington Post for their recent factually inaccurate, deliberately inflammatory anti-NRA hit piece. The article, which can be read here (https://archive.is/CuYIO) , claims Wayne LaPierre's video "How To Stop Violent Crime" inaccurately identifies De'Eris Brown, a thug who murdered a 9-year-old girl, and uses this to promote an "NRA is racist" narrative. Not only was this claim patently false, but it exposed writer Mike Weisser's own bigotry and bias in the process.

    Mr. President, there is something you can do to get gun legislation: debate NRA chief Wayne LaPierre. Millions would watch, and youd change many minds. On Thursday, in the wake of yet another school shooting, President Obama went into the James S. Brady Press Briefing Roomnamed for the victim of a would-be assassins bullet in 1981and left reporters in stunned silence with the vehemence of his remarks. Id ask the American people to think about how they can get our government to change these laws, and to save these lives and let these people grow up. Since the president is...

    My war was the Cold War. I spent a good chunk of my career helping to develop weapons to counter the communist threat. A chunk of our intelligence effort was spent attempting to determine what was going on inside of the Soviet Union, who might succeed who in the leadership, and what it might mean. Watching the NRA and trying to determine what is happening in its internal politics is much like that. There are the public pronouncements, that tell us some of what happened, after the fact. While the NRA elections can have a significant effect on select...

    The National Rifle Association is warning that the administration's plan to ban one type of AR-15 ammo is just the first step in taking away all hunting rounds, a backdoor bid to impose national gun control. "He can't ban their guns so he's going to ban their ammo," said Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, the nation's largest organization promoting the Second Amendment. His warning was the latest chapter on a new bid by the administration to ban the popular 5.56 M855 "green tip" ammunition used by AR-15 rifle. Last month the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and...

    One reason commercial liberal talk radios never quite succeeded is that NPR is a network with liberal hosts, liberal guests, and liberal callers. This perfect storm of unanimity displayed itself on Thursdays Diane Rehm Show, when they discussed the push for more gun control. There were no guests from the NRA, just moderate Richard Feldman, who wrote a book about his confessions of a gun lobbyist. On the other hand, Rehm brought on Mark Kelly, the astronaut husband of disabled ex-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to talk up his new gun-control group, as well as an anti-gun New York Times reporter and...

    For a second night on Thursday, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on his The Last Word show tried to blame NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre for inspiring the ricin-tainted letters recently sent to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Barack Obama. The MSNBC host teased the show: Well, turns out that when the NRA says that President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg are enemies of the Constitution, some very crazy people actually believe that. O'Donnell began the show by playing clips of LaPierre from the NRA convention in Houston criticizing Bloomberg and Obama. After updating viewers of the letters sent...

    Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy (D) ripped National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre on Sunday as someone who reminds him of the clowns at the circus. Malloy was responding to LaPierres criticism of Connecticuts new gun restrictions, signed into law after Decembers elementary school massacre in Newtown. LaPierre said the new rules wont affect criminals but will only make things harder for law-abiding citizens. Wayne reminds me of the clowns at the circus. They get the most attention and thats what hes paid to do, he said on CNNs State of the Union. This guy is so out of whack, its...

    As I said on Current TV a couple of nights ago, I have never seen a situation in which a Congress, terrified of a particular lobby, has behaved in such open contempt of American public opinion as its doing now on guns. Ninety percent of Americans approve of background checks, and upwards of 80 percent in many red states. But one man opposes them, and there we are. Wayne LaPierre may have won the week, and he may slither away without Congress doing anything this time around. But the laws of physics are such that he cant do this forever....

    Note to Piers Morgan: Journalism isn't rocket science and making a few phone calls can go a long way. Giddy about a Newtown search warrant that showed there was an NRA certificate found in the Lanza household,  Morgan tweeted giddily:  I want to hear Wayne LaPierre explain what checks they made on Adam Lanza before sending him a @nra certificate. #Newtown — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 28, 2013 Yet, this is an abject lie. Emily Miller of the Washington Times noted today in a piece responding to Morgan’s egregious and misleading tweets that: In the search warrants of the Lanza’s...

    Sunday on Meet the Press, Wayne LaPierre handed Mayor Bloomberg his head and it was a highlight to behold let me tell you. This clown of clowns went on the typical ego maniac diatribe about gun control for everyone. For starters, while David Gregory first interviewed Mayor Bloomberg, he replayed a previous tape of Bloomberg saying: The NRAs power is so vastly overrated. The public, when you do polls, they want this carnage to stop. If 20 small kids arent enough to stop it then, I dont know what is. After the clip, Bloomy with his fake smile says hes...

    MSNBC, for the second time on Thursday, smeared the National Rifle Association as racist, trashing the gun group's president as appealing to bigotry. Now host Alex Wagner read from an op-ed by Wayne LaPierre in which he argues that owning a gun is the only real protection from crime, looting and riots. Specifically, LaPierre mentioned the aftermath to Hurricane Sandy and looting in Brooklyn. Wagner quoted LaPierre: "Hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are the perils we are sure to face. Not just maybe. It's not paranoia to buy a gun. It's survival." She then sneered, "There's also a...

    Who knew that Lapierre was French for something disgusting stuck to the bottom of a shoe? I mean, surely it must be because NRA chief cheerleader Wayne LaPierre cant open his mouth lately without making me think of all kinds of truly repulsive images. What can I say?

When he whined that the presidents daughters got Secret Service protection while the rest of us have to send our own precious cherubs to school unarmed every day, I think I didnt stop screaming for a solid week.

    Sarah Palin's profile might not be as high as it was a few years ago, but she apparently still serves as a convenient punching bag for the left. On today's Morning Joe, as Joe Scarborough railed against the allegedly "stupid" arguments NRA leader Wayne LaPierre made on Fox News Sunday yesterday, Mika Brzezinski muttered "something Sarah Palin would say." Consider that Palin had been in no way quoted, nor had her position on gun control been discussed. This was nothing more than a gratuitious shot at Palin, obviously still a bogeyman for the MSM.
